I sporadically feel weakness in calves; I have had no accident to cause this. Is this low blood sugar? I also feel fatigued in the late afternoon- sometimes like I have to elevate my leg; the ankles aren't swollen- I have no idea what this is- no headaches;

I had bloodwork done 2 yrs ago- everything was normal- but this doesnt feel right at all-:confused:

  • I went 10 years experincing the same feeling. Can you walk a distance w/o legs tiring. I was finally diagnosed with a blockage in my aorta in my stomach right above the ileac. Ask your doctor to cehck the pulse in your feet.

  • I am having severe weakness in my legs when walking. I have a had scans and ultra sounds on my veins/arteries/kidney's and nothing shows up. I have bulging disk in my low back and degenerative disk. I have arthritis to some degree. I feel like I am going to sink to my knees and have a feeling that comes over me from my waist down that I might faint. I have to stop walking and hold on to something. I am miserable because and I don't think anyone believes me. All my blood work is fine.
